We built The Farmhouse in traditional style in rock, wood & stucco, natural slate & tiles. Internally we have laid floors of wood & terra-cotta tiles. The cupboards & kitchen furniture are all hand made in pinewood. Outside is a large shady patio of Pelion slate, with a barbecue, & a lawn with shade from cypress, olive & fig trees. Creeping up the walls are bougainvillea, jasmine, honey-suckle & oleanders. The patio is surrounded by pot-plants & flowering shrubs. The accommodation consists of a large, fully equipped kitchen, with steps leading down to 'The Snug' where the fireplace is situated.

Upstairs is another double bedroom & a small, 1 person, sleeping 'loft' (ideal for a child). There is ample room for 1 bed to be added should it be necessary for a large family or group. We built this house for when one of our daughters gets married & Lida has made it into a 'home' rather than a 'rental'. All our clients have commented on it's cosy feeling. The villa is fully equipped for self catering. It has an extensive kitchen with cooker, oven, microwave, toaster & coffee maker. Additionally, the villa has a washing machine, an iron and a hair dryer. Cots and baby chairs are also available. 'Geoff, our time on Skiathos fulfilled our every expectation and then some. This was in no small part due to your wonderful accommodation and your hospitality. It makes all the difference in the world if one feels welcome and you and Lida have that down to a fine art. What you have created in the Zorbathes Valley is very special: I'm quite sure many others have said the same thing. What is so patently obvious is that the stone house is not just that, its a home. For us it was the quantum difference between straightforward accommodation and a quality experience.'More

The location is great if you are looking for a quiet place off the beaten track. Skiathos is covered in woods and the villa is about a kilometer off the tarmac road in a secluded area where the helpful owners, Geof & Lida, have their...More

About the neighbourhood
Zorbathes is a peaceful valley which is hidden close to the centre of Skiathos Island. It is green & fertile & surrounded by pine forests. Through the bottom of the valley run stream beds whose banks are covered by an abundance of wild flowers & ferns, & are shaded by massive plane trees. Our end of the island, which is closest to the Pelion Peninsular, receives a goodly amount of winter rain & the lushness of the valley & the surrounding pine forests reflect this. It is just 5 minutes drive from the nearest sandy beaches, shops and tavernas. We are 15 minutes from the Airport and Skiathos Town. There is ample private parking. Available activities include all water sports, tennis, horse riding, hiking and cultural sight seeing.
